I love this video of a kid catching his first fish for so many reasons! It brings back childhood memories for me of going out to Alcova with my entire family and learning how to fish. And then, of course, that glorious moment when you get that first fish on the line.
There are a lot of different ways to catch a fish but I don't think I've ever seen anything so odd when it comes to catching a monster catfish. We generally do it with a pole here in Wyoming. Apparently, not how they do things in Oklahoma.
It seems like every time I go out fishing with my friends or family, I never catch anything all that impressive. That is if I catch anything at all besides a sunburn. So when I saw this guy in North Dakota breaking a record by catching a 16.9-pound walleye I was super jealous.
